Things are looking good for Republican senate candidate Blake Masters in Arizona.
The race is tightening, Masters has gained ground and is within striking distance of Democrat incumbent Mark Kelly.
Their recent debate may have had something to do with this, as Kelly looked unprepared.
Breitbart News reports:
Exclusive — Poll Shows Blake Masters Has Closed Gap with Democrat Mark Kelly in Arizona
Recent polling exclusively obtained by Breitbart News shows that Republican Blake Masters, looking to unseat Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly in Arizona, has gained momentum in the Grand Canyon State and is now within striking distance of the incumbent.
The polling conducted by OnMessage Inc., on behalf of Sentinel Action Fund, the super PAC affiliated with Heritage Action, the political arm of the prominent conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, showed Masters has been gaining momentum and is within the margin of error of Kelly after a spending blitz to the help the Republicans.
The group’s first poll was conducted from September 6 to 11, with 400 likely voters in Arizona with a 4.9 percent margin of error. At the time, the poll showed that Kelly was at 50 percent while Masters was at 40 percent. Additionally, the poll at the time found that Marc Victor, the Libertarian candidate, was at six percent, and five percent were undecided.
Now, the most recent poll showed that Masters has the momentum going for him. The polling was done from October 8 to 10, with 600 likely voters and a tighter four percent margin of error. It showed that the race has tightened as Kelly is now below 50 percent, at 46 percent, with Masters at 43 percent. Victor was also at four percent, while seven percent was still undecided.
This is another one of those races that Democrats probably did not expect to be competitive.

They see Blake Masters surging as early ballots are about to drop. After @bgmasters left Mark Kelly stuttering, stammering, & lying in the debate last night the trend is likely to intensify. pic.twitter.com/l0OmmAWDDm

The closer we get to the midterms, the more it seems like Republicans could take the Senate.
